The iron king by Maurice Druon( Book )
60 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Iron King--Philip the Fair--is as cold and silent, as handsome and unblinking as a statue. He governs his realm with an iron hand, but he cannot rule his own family: his sons are weak and their wives adulterous; while his red-blooded daughter Isabella is unhappily married to an English king who prefers the company of men. A web of scandal, murder and intrigue is weaving itself around the Iron King; but his downfall will come from an unexpected quarter. Bent on the persecution of the rich and powerful Knights Templar, Philip sentences Grand Master Jacques de Molay to be burned at the stake, thus drawing down upon himself a curse that will destroy his entire dynasty..."--Page [4] of cover

"En La caída de los cuerpos, Maurice Druon continúa el durísimo ajuste de cuentas a la sociedad francesa de la Tercera República que iniciara con la publicación de Las grandes familias, novela con la que ganó el premio Goncourt de 1948. En esta segunda entrega de la trilogía homónima asistimos a la debacle de la vieja guardia de los clanes Schoudler y La Monnerie. Si el hundimiento del banquero Noël Schoudler retrata el fin de las fortunas amasadas durante el siglo XIX y la codicia de los especuladores que sucumbirán en la crisis financiera mundial de 1929; Urbain de La Monnerie, ciego y octogenario habitante del castillo de Mauglaives, encarna la decadencia de una vieja aristocracia que está a punto de desaparecer. En cambio, nada parece detener el ascenso del arribista Simon Lachaume, un político frío y cerebral, hecho a sí mismo, que no reconoce otros antepasados que 'la universidad, las antecámaras de los ministerios, las salas de redacción y los gabinetes de gobierno.'"--P. [4] of cover

90 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Un intervalo de seis años separa La Ley de los Varones y La Loba de Francia. Durante esos años, de 1318 a 1324, el país ha sido sabiamente gobernado, aunque azotado por diversas calamidades: la cruzada de los campesinos, la rebelión de los leprosos, agitaciones, massacres y más. Felipe V el Largo muere sin haber llegado a los treinta años de edad y sin dejar descendencia masculina. El tercer hijo del Rey de Hierro, el débil Carlos IV, sucede a Felipe V. Durante su reinado, Francia será gobernada por representantes de la alta nobleza. El nuevo y dramático giro de la historia se originará en Inglaterra. La Loba de Francia es el trágico sobrenombre que los cronistas de la época le dieron a Isabel, hija de Felipe el Hermoso y reina de Inglaterra, quien pareció trasplantar la maldición de los templarios al otro lado del Canal de la Mancha.--Desde la descripción de la editorial
